DO'S AND DON'TS FILM. PORTRAYS WAYS IN WHICH OFFICE ETIQUETTE CONTRIBUTES TO SUCCESS IN OFFICE RELATIONSHIPS. THE TYPICAL SITUATIONS INCLUDE APPLYING FOR A JOB, REPORTING FOR WORK THE 1ST DAY, PERFORMING ROUTINE SECRETARIAL DUTIES, & TELEPHONE COURTESY.
Office Etiquette is one of the many films that follows a young woman who is seeking a secretarial job. It makes the off-center but accurate point that success in the office is gauged by behavior and interpersonal relationships as well as competence. The do's and don'ts sequence is delightful in its excesses.
Another strange Office manners movie made by our friends at EB. Although it lacks the loopiness and ugly characters as Office Courtesy: Meeting The Public, it still offers many loopy surprises.
When a woman named Joan Spencer applies into the typing pool by filling out a very politically incorrect application form (these days) that includes how many children she has, the boss realizes she was part of Miss Purcell's typing class in High School. The boss likes that (this is repeated frequently for some odd reason) and is hired on the spot. After that is a collection of what you should and shouldn't do on the job (what's so funny is that I've totally broken every one of the "shouldn't" things. Next thing you know, Joan becomes her boss's secretary, and then after that, head of Personell! This all looks like the promotion just took place in two days, which may confuse the 50's girl lol. This is a MUST SEE on this site!
